India has a long history in aquaculture, references available from Kautilya’s Arthashastra (321–300 B.C.) and King Someswara’s Manasoltara (1127 A.D.) about fish culture. Fish farming in small ponds have existed for hundreds of years in eastern part of India; West Bengal has made significant advances in early 19th Century by controlled breeding for carps in (baandh) dams. Tamilnadu has received notable attention in fish culture in early 1911 followed by various states of India. Government of India has initiated fish culture through fisheries departments and support to fishers and farmers.
